Jay was born April 23, 1964, in St. Cloud to Elmer and Beatrice “Poo” (Paggen) Dahl.  He graduated from St. Cloud Technical High School in 1982.  Most recently, he was a glass installer for Mike’s Auto Glass in Milaca. 

Jay is survived by his loving companion, Sue Boom; children, Eric Tenvoorde, St. Cloud; Sondra Tenvoorde, St. Cloud; his mother, Poo Dahl, St. Cloud and his siblings, Jim (Dayna) Dahl, St. Cloud; Jean Dahl, Frankfort, KY and Jody (Andy) Frye, Minneapolis.

Jay enjoyed a simple life filled with friends and family. He accumulated a vast group of friends who valued their time sharing food and funny stories with Jay. His humorous observations on life will be missed by all. With Jay gone many more cars will be driven with dents.

Jay is preceded in death by his father, Elmer Dahl and a niece.
